Emerge from the Pandemic with live music at a beautiful outdoor performance space at Casa Flamenca! The space can hold around 160 people at full capacity. We are currently selling 120 (75% capacity, as per current health orders). This is a great way to get used to going out again with a killer lineup of many of Albuquerque’s best artists. Come out and support local music and check out this amazing new community space. Casa Flamenca created this space in the fall while dealing with the devastating impact of the pandemic on their business. A portion of the proceeds from each show will go to help them pay for the cost of building this space (around $10K, so a substantial investment!). If you would like to make additional donations to support them, you’ll have an opportunity to do that when you buy your tickets or you can DONATE NOW.
SEATING: We have enough seating to accommodate everyone!
PARKING: There is plenty of street parking, but you are also welcome to park at Monica’s El Portal across the street. Big thanks to Monica for letting us use their lot after hours!
CONCESSIONS: We have drinks (water, soda, sparkling water), chips & cookies and sometimes light snacks and homemade goodies.
Masks are not required if vaccinated. They are encouraged for lining up, checking in and entry. Most people are not wearing masks for the majority of the evening outside.
Lara Manzanares is an award-winning bilingual singer-songwriter of Northern New Mexican heritage. In addition to singing the Mexican boleros, rancheras, and corridos of her sheep-ranching childhood, Lara also composes her own style of music in both English and Spanish. Through a combination of storytelling and songs both playful and sincere, Lara draws on her rural New Mexican roots and her urban experiences across the U.S. and abroad as she sings about love, loss, a sense of place, and her own connection to the land. Lara will be playing with upright bassist Tanya Nuñez (Lone Piñon) and drummer Arnaldo Acosta.
Liz Howdy (she/they) is a Diné person residing in occupied Tiwa territory, also known as “Albuquerque”. Howdy incorporates voice, bass, and buffalo hand drum to create music she refers to as having “hózhó medicine vibes” that reflects her journey as a modern indigenous person powered by ancestral resilience.
